Protocol Rollout

We received significant feedback at the rollout meetings regarding the protocols. They have been edited and submitted in PDF format. These protocols have been reviewed by everyone at the rollouts, and the MPCC April Meeting. There are a few formatting issues that we have been unable to correct. However, the entire 4000 series is currently being retyped. This should resolve the formatting issues. Protocol 9107 has been reviewed by the Regional Medical Directors. It was written to provide guidance in patient care hand-off. The intent is to formalize the process permitting a lower certified provider deliver care in the patient compartment. It has been rewritten to clarify many of the concerns expressed at the rollouts. Due to the increased time getting these released and the upcoming Memorial Holiday, the training time will be extended until June 7, 2013
